All Power Reactor Licensees 


This letter is being sent to all licensees or applicants authorized to 
operate of construct a nuclear power reactor. 

In May 1978, the NRR staff held a meeting with the nuclear power reactor 
industry to discuss the implementation of the physical security requirements
and other topics of interest to licensees in this area. Since the May 1978 
meeting, additional requirements as well as Commission decisions regarding 
the implementation of the nuclear power reactor physical security program 
and other proposed rules and regulations have been issued. 

To maintain a forum for the continuation of dialogue between the staff and 
industry in order to provide a more uniform understanding of the 
requirements of 10 CFR Part 73, the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 
Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, has scheduled a meeting on June 11-12, 
1979 at the Hilton Inn, 1901 University Boulevard, N.E., Albuquerque, New 
Mexico. This meeting was scheduled following discussions with utilities and 
industry groups who indicated that a general meeting should be held 
following the guard training workshops which will be concluded in early May.

Individuals attending the meeting will be responsible for making their own 
travel and lodging accommodations for the meeting. To assist the attendees 
in lodging accommodations, the Hilton Inn will hold a block of rooms for 
meeting attendees only until May 28, 1979. Experience has shown that 
attendees may not be able to obtain accommodations at the Hilton Inn after 
this cut-off date. Rates for single rooms range from $30 to $39, and from 
$38 to $47 for doubles. 

Pre-Registration will be held in the Garden Room of the Hilton Inn on 
Sunday, June 10, 1979 from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.,. Registration will also be 
available from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Monday, June 11, 1979 at the 
entrance to the International Room. 

The meeting will consist of 1 full day of presentations by the staffs of the
NRC and Los Alamos Scientific Laboratories with question and answer periods 
for the licensees and applicants, and 1 day of topical discussion on the 
development and implementation of the guard training plans.
